Information on Internet Safety – shared by Jane Commins, Youth Engagement Officer at Cheshire Constabulary Safer Schools and Young Persons Partnership

  • It is important to educate children about being safe on-line and about making a positive contribution – both parents and school should be responsible for this
  • Parents should not tell their child they don’t know anything about technology – don’t say ‘Don’t ask me, I don’t know how it works!’, do say ‘We could find out about it together to decide whether it’s safe or how we can make it safe’
  • Parents need to encourage their child to be open about what they are doing so that they feel able to talk when there is a problem
